Liquied Natural Gas Terminal for Coos Bay

Fort Chicago Energy Partners said last week that the Jordan Cove Energy Project and the Pacific Connector Gas Pipeline received a final environmental impact statement from the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission for their plan to build a natural gas import terminal and pipeline in Oregon.

The impact statement “is a significant milestone for these projects,” said Stephen White, Fort Chicago’s president.

“The next step in the process will be for the FERC to issue a certificate of public convenience and necessity, which we expect to receive later this summer,” he said.

Jordan Cove Energy Project is a subsidiary of Fort Chicago, and Pacific Connector Gas Pipeline is a limited partnership between subsidiaries of Williams Cos., PG&E Corp. and Fort Chicago.

Construction of a liquefied natural gas terminal in Coos Bay will take about three years, and the 234-mile pipeline will take two years to build, Fort Chicago said.
